Scratch built Spanish Civil War building
I knocked this one up pretty quickly, starting with a base of 8" sq hardboard I built the structure up from foamcore textured with pumice gel, the wall posts are 1/4" basswood and the gates and doors are made from coffee stirrers.
The whitewashed brickwork and render was given a basecoat of Dulux Dutch Gold 3 and highlighted up with Reeves 'Sand'. The doors and gates were painted Vallejo Pale Sand and highlighted up with Vallejo Ivory. The roof was sprayed Leather Brown and highlighted up with Saddle Brown and Dark Sand.
Some graffiti was daubed on and the basing done.
There are a few things I am not happy with, I think that I made the windows are too big and like a doofus forgot to put a chimney on it!
Here are a few more images taken from each fascia.
